A much loved tradition here at All Saints Senior is our Valentine’s Day fundraiser organised by the SRC. This year the love spread for a good cause was testament to the great work that the leaders do here in our College. The students are able to pre-purchase roses that will be sent to their recipients during homeroom on Valentine’s Day. Students send them to their friends, their teachers or significant others to put a smile on their face for the day but also to help others.
The College leaders give their time to sell the roses; wrap them individually and attach cards to the recipients the day before and deliver them on Valentine’s Day. As February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, the students donate the proceeds of the fundraiser to Ovarian Cancer Australia, to help assist women in our community who are struggling with treatment and access to services as they fight this very difficult and deadly disease.
Thank you to Stephanie Jennings at Fairytale Flowers, Casula for all her organisation and assistance. To be supported by a local business emphasises to the students the value of community support and involvement.
